Ten cool BPA-free reusable water bottles for kids + bonus art bottle

We just looked at ten fab BPA-free reusable water bottles for adults but kids have different needs. Reusable water bottles for kids need to be absolutely chemical and BPA-free, easy to hold, unbreakable, light-weight, not too large (unless you’ve got my kid – the living H2O fountain), have the proper fluid flow and most of all a child’s reusable water bottle should be a little fun. Reusable water bottles are a great starting point with regards to green living for kids and the more fun the bottle the more inclined they’ll be to use it regularly and happily.

NOTE: I tried to share options for very little ones (such as sippy style bottles) and some for older kids as well. Also, while I did post one or two Tritan bottles for adults, I suggest you skip Tritan material when buying for kids. Kids have developing bodies, and while Tritan is BPA-free, until Tritan bottle manufacturers decide to be completely forthcoming about all chemicals, I personally wouldn’t chance a Tritan bottle for a child.

Following are ten safe, non-toxic reusable water bottle options for the younger set…

Buy a Klean Kanteen Sippy Cup, Klean Kanteen 12 oz Classic with sports cap or Klean Kanteen Wide.NOTE – I linked right to Klean Kanteen for the 12 oz w/sports cap because there was recently a sports cap recall – so I wouldn’t buy from an outside dealer unless you’re sure you’re getting a new safe sports cap.

    Thanks for the great information! I ordered some of the water bottles from links from your post!

    I would love to find a reusable, bpa-free, safe coffee travel cup/mug… have you heard of one? … maybe a future posting? Love your blog :)

  2. Jennifer says

    Oh and also since I didn’t answer your other question – yeah, there are lots of BPA-free coffee mugs. I’ve gone through a lot (coffee addict). I’ll post about that at some point. Nothing freaks me out like seeing Portland natives with toss away cups… Really?

  3. says

    i would love a post about a safe coffee travel mug (every time I drink out of mine, the plastic kills a little of the coffee enjoyment :)

    i will email you details about our newest addition, an e-cookbook that we’re selling (organic, family-friendly, quick & 91% vegetarian recipes)… and we’re adding organic bibs (hopefully in the fall).

  4. MK says

    I just read something on an amazon review about crocodile creek. it says that the bottles are lead safe NOT lead FREE and that the exterior paid has lead in them. I can’t confirm that the paint has lead in them but I do notice on their website that its says “lead safe” and not “lead free.

  5. says

    that’s very discouraging… especially since they are selling childrens good :( as a parent, we check as many details and facts as we can, but at a certain point we have to take a leap of faith and hope that the company is doing the right thing.

    thanks for the update!

  6. Jennifer says

    I know that Soft Landing sells these bottles, so I’m kind of on the fence. I really trust Soft Landing, but had not heard about the lead deal. I’ll have to look into it.

  7. says

    This is a really fab selection. I was expecting to find one or two but I now feel spoilt for choice!! How will I choose just one that I need for my daughter.
